Obituary for Barbara Casey

Barbara Ann Ryan Casey, age 85, passed away peacefully today (August 8, 2020) after a long illness. Her husband of 63 years was by her side, as he has been through thick and thin for all those years.

Barbara is survived by her husband, Martin, her children, Susan (Larry), Marty Jr. (Marzena), Jeanne (Raymond), Eileen (Sam), Kerry (Denis), Patrick (Bonnie), 16 grandchildren, her sisters Judith Keenan, Patricia Troy of Van Nuys California, and Jane Ellen Kranson of Nevada.

Barbara was born in Brooklyn, NY to Joseph and Selma Broker Ryan in 1935. She is predeceased by her three older brothers, Joseph, Walter, and Richard. She and Marty moved to Staten Island in 1964, months before the bridge was built. Barbara worked various jobs helping to raise her six children, including school librarian at St. Charles School in Oakwood, and school secretary at St. Adalberts in Mariners Harbor. After retiring from her many years of service to catholic grammar schools here on the island, she picked up the game of golf.

Having been a lifelong athlete thanks to her three brothers, she took to the game and started a long legacy at both La Tourette Women’s league and South Shore Silvettes. Over the course of her career here on Staten Island, Barbara succeeded in becoming Club Champion at La Tourette 13 times, and South Shore Golf Course 3 times. Adding to her prestigious career, in 1998 she won the 1st Annual Public Course Women’s Tournament for NY, NJ and CT.

If you knew Barbara, you would know that she loved to laugh, she loved to have a good time, and she loved the people around her. She loved to vacation and travel, and she shared that with her family generously. Her sense of adventure was exemplified by her Hobie cat sailing, parasailing adventures, the famous banana boat ride in Turks and Caicos and of course, the Bi-Plane flying with her favorite partner in crime, Jack Keenan.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by Colonial Funeral Home at 2819 Hylan Blvd. Viewing will be Tuesday, August 11, 2020 2-4 p.m. and again from 7-9 p.m. The funeral mass is 10:15 a.m. Wednesday morning, August 12 at St. Charles Church. Private cremation to follow.

In lieu of flowers the family is asking you to please perform a random act of kindness in Barbara’s name.

Barbara was a good friend from Fontbonne, and also from down the block on 16th Street.
We hung around in a crowd. Barbara was one of the funniest, always laughing and up to pranks.

We were the Irish kids...the Quinn boys, Richie McCauley, Margie O'Toole, Maureen O'Shea.

We got up to some mischief, but always good, clean fun.

At Fontbonne, Barbara was an excellent basketball player. She was great at handball, but I beat her once on the court at Ocean Tide. She was also a very strong swimmer.

It makes me happy to remember those days, and Barbara, a sweet and charming friend.

We were an Irish gang...the Quinn boys,
